An unverified account posted the image of Biren Singh on Facebook. The credibility of the account and the image is unknown. On Feb. 25, an image was posted from a Facebook account of N. Biren Singh, picturizing Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh walking with folded hands on the red carpet, and on both sides, students knelt with bowing their heads on the ground. The post was captioned, "I am really proud to see the culture and customs of the Manipuris. What a discipline". The image went viral and faced criticisms.

Biren Singh's official account posted few images of the event and was captioned by Biren Singh as, "History is created today!. One Manipur against illegal drugs!. All communities and tribes in the State come together as one in the fight against drugs and poppy plantations in the State at a public convention held in Imphal today...."Biren Singh added, "No to Poppy Cultivation! No to Illicit Drugs! Save Future Generations".

On Feb. 25, 2021, an event, "All Communities Convention for a Pledge Against Illegal Poppy Plantation," was organized by "Meitei Leepun in association with the top bodies of these 33 communities under the supervision of the Chief Minister" at Imphal’s Bhagyachandra Open Air Theatre, Manipur. During the event, NDTV reported, Biren Singh pledged along with the leaders of 33 communities to destroy illegal poppy cultivation and business. It was a part of the campaign launched by Biren Singh, "War on Drugs."

The account from which the photo had been posted is unverified. Although, there is an official account of N Biren Singh, which does not include that image in the post updating about the event. There are no credible sources to verify the image or the account. Hence the claim is unverifiable.
